Director: Sara Colangelo
Stars: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Parker Sevak, Gael García Bernal

Facing midlife crisis, Lisa is drifting as a teacher and failing to impress at the literature class she attends – until she passes off the poems of five-year-old pupil Jimmy as her own. Deciding the boy is a genius, she’s determined to nurture and mould his talent, whereas his father would rather give him a normal, happy childhood. Her attempts to get closer to Jimmy backfire, fuelling a dangerous obsession… Gyllenhaal’s superb performance is the driving force of a psychodrama that will leave you “mesmerised, unsettled” (The Observer).

A level of daring we don’t often see – ★★★★★ Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
